The teenage years can be hard. Body changes, new friends and even taking on new responsibilities can stress a teen and become burdensome. The media and peers both have influence on teens and how they should behave in today’s culture. Many teens often feel that they are not good enough. Teens can use any encouragement and praise that we can give them. The ultimate comforter and ‘cheerleader’ is Christ. He has given us a game plan of how to encourage teens with the Bible. The following list includes ten Bible verses for teens that they can memorize to keep tucked away in their hearts for when times get tough.
Parenting a teenager comes with many trials and sometimes it is hard for us to know if we are providing our child with sufficient support. Your child is entering new territory in their teen years as they are undergoing many changes both physically and mentally. While your teenager doesn’t come with a specific training manual, God’s Word provides us with some encouraging messages.
